Important Christiania safety note:
Christiania has always been controversial and is still a very hotly-discussed area, not least because of problems with the illegal trading of hash. Some visitors may find Christiania, particularly the area around Pusher Street, to be rough.
When entering Christiania it is therefore extremely important that you follow the Do's and Don'ts signs up at the entrances. Here you'll find advice against running or talking on the mobile phone inside Christiania. As well as this, visitors must not take photographs or film inside Christiania.
For your own safety, we recommend that you do not take cameras with you at all to Christiania. A tourist was attacked inside Christiania a few years ago, simply for having a camera on them, even though they were not attempting to take photographs. The same applies to cameras on mobile phones.
